I enjoy doing daily tasks and one-off projects to lighten the load for professionals that cannot worry about the details. I am a great candidate for everything from managing email accounts that seem out of control, recording voice prompts, editing educational curriculum, managing WordPress accounts, and writing articles, to creating and formatting presentations and business forms and documents. I really like to call myself the Jill of all trades and strive to make all things transparent for my clients. I am also a homeschooling mother, and am looking for contracts that will continue to enable me to indulge in this passion. I am excited to explore opportunities with new clients.

India - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 10

I specialise in brand names, product names,tag lines, slogans,catch phrase, logos and corporate identity design. I am a Management Graduate with a Major in Marketing Management from India with 6+ years experience in Marketing Management, Brand Management and Business Analysis. This short poem summarises my profile: I was caught in a daily rigmarole In something as boring as a 9-5 role To climb the corporate ladder I was all set And was not getting a creative outlet I made a trade off and gave up my fixed salary Instead on odesk I opened my creative gallery I took a decision that was brave Or maybe I was digging my own grave All the naysayers thought it was a blunder But my leap of faith did do a wonder Now I name a company, design identities and make a tagline I guess life has turned out just fine :)
